Builders may buy the land if it is right for their needs..given a minimum lot size, setback requirements & location. But there are individuals who also seek property to buy and build on. I have a client & a builder who seek property in Northbrook. My west suburban client has been seeking a non-updated home to expand or build on specifically in the downtown area or west of the train station. Please contact me Gayle Stellas @ 847-602-6266. By the way, if a home is on the property, then the buyer has a much better chance of securing a loan.
